Tony Gwynn scores the winning run in the 1994 All-Star Game

New, 9 comments

Easily my favorite All-Star moment and memory was 1994. The NL broke a 6 game losing streak in extra innings.

It was one of Gwynn's favorite moments too:

"The 1999 Fenway game has to be my favorite [All-Star Game]," Gwynn said. "Being there with Mr. Williams, after all he'd done for me, had to be the best. My best game actually was in 1994, when I scored the winning run."

Tony Gwynn had already hit a two run double in the bottom of the 3rd. His single in the 10th would set the table for Moises Alou. Alou hit a game winning double that scored the speedy Gwynn from first. It all came down to a slide at the plate.

Take notice of how Gwynn high fives his teammates but embraces Ken Caminiti.

Gwynn would eventually enter the Hall of Fame and become the greatest San Diego Padre who ever lived. He would reminisce about the game only after eating Strawberry Short Kook Otter Pops that turned his tongue red.

Moises Alou would be known the world over for urinating on his hands on the reg.

Epic.
